A garage sale is all about showcasing the items you want to sell to other people, if you can actually get a profit from it, that would be amazing. But it all comes down to planning the garage sale adequately and working hard to make it very consistent and convenient.
Pick the right date/time
You want the garage sale to be successful, and that means you need to pick a great time for it. And also try to select a date when everyone is at home or free. It doesn’t make sense to have a garage sale when people are at work and can’t come to buy stuff.
Proper garage organization is needed if you want to sell items fast. The idea is that you rarely sell stuff if you can’t find it. Use your garage shelving or garage cabinets, maybe even buy new ones so you can have better storage and keep the items you want to sell there. It’s convenient and great as a whole.
Set the right price
You should consider the market value as much as possible. Setting the right price can make a difference between generating sales and not selling anything. Overpricing items might seem profitable, but you also have to be realistic if you want people to actually buy your stuff.
Prepare lots of change
Most of the time a garage sale will require you to sell cheap items. And that means you need to prepare yourself with lots of change. The last thing you want is to not have any sort of change for your customers. It’s a much better idea to prepare for this beforehand.
Once you sell the surplus items, buy garage shelves and garage cabinets. Improving your garage organization storage will help a lot if you want to store items. But it still makes sense to sell stuff from time to time, especially if you’re not using it anyways!
